Airbnb Superhost Rewards
Being an Airbnb host can be a rewarding experience and Airbnb is taking that to the next level with Airbnb Superhost Rewards. Making extra money and meeting people from all over the world are two awesome perks of hosting, but there are even more incentives for those stellar hosts who achieve the Airbnb Superhost badge!
Over the years, Airbnb has continually evolved in many aspects of its business. Website updates, customer support, new features, and much much more. At the core of Airbnb’s business are the individual hosts and Airbnb has also improved the ways that hosts are rewarded for performing at the highest level – Superhost. A new set of rewards called Airbnb Superhost Rewards are being rolled out for Superhosts to take advantage of. Some of them are already active while others will be available soon!
One of the incentives to being a Superhost over the years has been a $100 Airbnb travel credit. I’ve always enjoyed using my travel credit to pay for fun weekend trips to new places. Meeting other Airbnb hosts and seeing how they run their accommodations is also a neat perk that has helped me improve the experience I provide for my guests too!
The Superhost travel credit is still available within Airbnb Superhost Rewards, but there’s much more!
Airbnb Superhost Rewards
Discount on Nest Products
As I’ve detailed in my post about the benefits of installing a Nest smart thermostat, having an advanced, energy efficient thermostat will improve the comfort of your home as well as save you money on your energy bill. Now with Airbnb Superhost Rewards, you can get Nest products discounted up to 30%! You’ll be saving money upfront on the purchase as well as saving money long-term through reduced energy consumption. What a deal!
Improved Listing Visibility
Airbnb has always featured its high performing hosts and Airbnb Superhost Rewards is a continuation of this. While some of the visibility perks are not new, it is good to see that Airbnb is committed to helping their Superhosts.
- Priority Placement – Superhost listings get featured in searches as well as emails and other marketing activities done by Airbnb
- Superhost Search Filter – Airbnb guests have the ability to specifically filter their searches to Superhosts only. This is a huge perk as many guests aim to avoid new or lower rated Airbnb hosts.
- Superhost Badge – The Superhost badge will be placed on your profile so guests know that they are working with one of Airbnb’s highest rated hosts!
- Custom URL (not yet available) – Airbnb is working on allowing Superhosts to have a custom URL which would make advertising and link-sharing much easier.

As I mentioned before, Airbnb Superhost Rewards is an extension of the existing perks available to elite Airbnb hosts. Here are some more things you’ll get as an Airbnb Superhost!
- Bigger Referral Bonus – Airbnb Superhosts will get an extra 20% bonus when referring new hosts to Airbnb
